Annual Energy Review 2009 Release
Summary data on energy production, consumption, imports, and exports
The Annual Energy Review 2009 (AER), released on August 19, 2010, provides EIA's most comprehensive look at integrated energy statistics. Summary statistics from the report indicate the following:
· In 2009, U.S. primary energy production fell 0.6 percent to 73.0 quadrillion Btu, down from the record high of 73.4 quadrillion Btu the previous year.
· U.S. renewable energy production reached 8 quadrillion Btu in 2009, with wind energy registering the largest year-to-year percentage increase among renewable sources.
· U.S. primary energy consumption fell to 95 quadrillion Btu in 2009, down from the all-time high of 102 quadrillion Btu in 2007 and 5 percent below the 2008 level.
· From 2008 to 2009, U.S. energy net imports fell 12 percent to 23 quadrillion Btu; petroleum net imports totaled 21 quadrillion Btu.
· U.S. carbon dioxide emissions from energy consumption fell 7 percent from 2008 to 2009, due primarily to a decrease in consumption of coal and petroleum.
The Annual Energy Review 2009 covers all major energy sources and all energy-consuming sectors of the U.S. economy from 1949 through 2009. Key long-term trends are graphically illustrated in the introductory section "Energy Perspectives." See the full report, in pdf, html, and Excel formats, at http://www.eia.gov/aer/contents.html.
